Choir Festival – Abingdon

On Saturday (Sept 30th) some members of the choir joined others for a choral evensong at St Helens church Abingdon. The event was the annual RCSM festival where choirs from all over the Diocese came together to celebrate evensong. We had been practicing for weeks to join a choir of over 100 which was coached and conducted by Mark WIlliams. Highlights included a Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis by Herbert Murrill, (a bit of a challenge) and finishing with a spirited rendition of The Heavens are telling by Joseph Haydn.
